Mindful Thoughts for City Dwellers explores how spiritually nourishing living in a metropolis can be, offering its urban occupants an inspiring energy and a special kind of humanity.

Part of the Mindful Thoughts series, this lovingly illustrated little book meditates on all aspects of city life, including:
  • Noticing nature
  • Embracing chaos
  • The joy of small living
  • Resourcefulness
  • Revelling in change
  • Night walks
  • Connecting with community
  • . . . and much more
It is often assumed that cities are terrible places for our spiritual and mental health but this could not be further from the truth. Through 25 focused thoughts, Lucy Anna Scott shows how cities are enriching, inventive, ever-evolving and endlessly social; providing a togetherness that is a powerful force for wellbeing. This is an inspiring read for anyone that lives or works in a city, that is moving to one or has fallen out of love with one.
